        Description

        FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
        java version "1.8.0_66"
        Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_66-b17)
        Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 25.66-b17, mixed mode)

        Also seen with 8u51x86

        ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
        Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1 (7601.win7sp1_gdr.151230-0600)

        EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
        User systems I've seen this on tend to have a fair bit extra software (antivirus, skype, VNC server, etc, etc)

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        As best as we can determine, system generated SequencedEvent(s) for window focus events (Focus Gained/Focus lost) are arriving into the event queue out of sequence.
        I have a SSCE that demonstrates that out of sequence SequencedEvents generate a hang.
        I'm not sure why the window events are arriving in the event queue out of sequence, timestamps between the first and second event have been seen to place the second event as having been created more than 20 seconds _before_ the first sequenced event, and also fewer than 200ms before.

        STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
        Create two sequenced events. Submit them to the event queue in reverse order.

        We're seeing this happen with system generated Window Focus events (Focus Gained/Focus Lost) on 8u51 and 8u66. We're testing 8u74 (no results yet).

        The hang occurs every time the events arrive out of order, but they only arrive out of order infrequently. Often enough to be a significant problem to users. Rare enough to make troubleshooting difficult. Thus far, the faulty events have all been observed to be window focus events.


        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        Sequenced Event lives up to its stated design:

        A mechanism for ensuring that a series of AWTEvents are executed in a
         precise order, even across multiple AppContexts. The nested events will be
        dispatched in the order in which their wrapping SequencedEvents were
        constructed.

        The second event to be submitted is processed first
        ACTUAL -
        The AWT Event Queue continues to queue events, but stops all event processing. The application is effectively hung.

        ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR :
        Stack of the event thread - it always contains a SequencedEvent in the stack.
